20 installing spotify and adding a keyboard shortcut for it on plasma

Check the version of spotify on
AUR and 3Party repo
Install the most recent version

Since we use spotify constantly on all our installations of all the desktops we have added spotify to the 3party repo. This version will not be auto updated. It is a manual job. One we tend to forget. It is not that important anyway. Spotify will keep working whether it is version x or y.

The advantage of having a 3party repo is the installation time. It will be faster as a build from AUR.

You decide to install it from AUR or from 3party repo.
Check the version number.

sudo pacman -S spotify
yay -S spotify

We show you how to make keyboard shortcuts for firefox, vivaldi and spotify.

Plasma Challenge

You can follow our tutorials based on either of two ISO’s.

1. ArcoLinuxB Plasma (recommended)

We record the plasma video’s on an SSD installed from theĀ ArcoLinuxB Plasma ISO.
You can either create your very own ArcoLinuxB Plasma ISO following this tutorial or download it from Sourceforge. (ArcoLinuxB-plasma-18.11.2.ISO of 4.3 GB – games included)

2. ArcoLinuxD Plasma

You can also use the ArcoLinuxD ISO and then install Plasma with the help of the github scripts. This will not be an exact copy of the ISO.

Learn about the Plasma desktop and enjoy it.
